How to use

Using the character controller itself is quite easy, simply instantiate it and call the startPlayer function. You can set it's start position and rotation using the setStartPos and setStartHpr functions.

base.cTrav = CollisionTraverser("base collision traverser")

# actual character setup
player = PlayerController(base.cTrav, "path/to/config.json")
# start the player


Configuration of the player is done in a json file that has to be passed to the controllers constructor. Simply copy and tweak the config file which can be found in the data folder. For further information see the PDF documentation.
